Canon PIXMA iX6850 Wi-Fi Office Printer review

 

Is this the future of printing, or a niche product for design professionals and hardcore hobbyists?

Great photo printing ; A3 output ; Good connectivity options ; Small footprint

No Duplex ; No internal paper trays ; No facilities to print from USB or memory cards ; No screen

The Canon PIXMA iX6850 is good but its lack of internal paper trays and ports mean it's not an ideal all-round workhorse.

Canon Pixma iX6850 review

  (Rating Hidden)

Buy this if you need an A3/A3+ printer.

 

Recent purchase prior to a dream holiday in Rome. Fantastic hi-res print quality from A Nikon D7200 with a Sigma 18-35 f1.8 A lens. A bit of a tweak on the images in Photoshop and Lightroom. Printed 6 photos on A3+ hi-gloss 280gsm paper and the detail...

print quality

difficult to connect to wifi as no screen to set-up. Have had to just print with cable which means I can't use tablets and phone to print from even though the description said this would all work.

Great quality A3 colour printer

 

This IX6850 replaced the previous A3 Canon printer I used without issues for 4 years. It worked right out of the box and using borderless A3 setting on matte paper the results are really good, bright solid colours - no banding. I found the wireless...
